The Wheel & The Maypole Lyrics

I've got the plough if you've got the furrow
I've got the rabbit if you've his burrow home
I've got the pen if you've got the paper
Time is but clay and I'll see you and the wheel turn
You and the wheel turn

And if the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
Then we'll dash it to the ground

And if the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
We'll build one bigger all around, goes the wheel

I've got the seed if you've got the valley
I've got the big stick if you've Aunt Sally's head
I've got the time if you've got the motion
Time is but clay and I'll see you and the wheel turn
You and the wheel turn

And if the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
Then we'll dash it to the ground

And if the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
We'll build one bigger all around, goes the wheel

Maypole, maypole, maypole, you've spun me 'round
And knocked me off my axis mundi, maypole
Maypole, maypole, the ties that bind you will unwind
To free me one day and everything decays

Everything decays, forest tumbles down
To make the soil, planets fall apart
Just to feed the stars and stuff their larders
And what made me think we're any better
And what made me think we'd last forever
Was I so naive? Of course, it all unweaves

Maypole, maypole, maypole, you've spun me 'round
And knocked me off my axis mundi, maypole
Maypole, maypole, the ties that bind you will unwind
To free me one day and everything decays

Pyramids and palaces to dust, empires crumble in
Wedding cake begins to must and moulder
And what made me think we're any better
And what made me think we'd last forever
Was I so naive? Failing to perceive

Maypole, round goes the wheel
Maypole, round goes the wheel

Maypole, the ties that bind
You will unwind to free me one day
Maypole, the ties that bind
You will unwind to free me one day

Maypole, the ties that bind
You will unwind to free me one day
Maypole, the ties that bind
You will unwind to free me one day

Maypole, the ties that bind
You will unwind to free me one day
Maypole, the ties that bind
You will unwind to free me one day

Maypole, the ties that bind
You will unwind to free me one day
Maypole, the ties that bind
You will unwind to free me one day
